The financier Jan Blaško left the PPF Group, owned by the richest Petr Kellner, in January 2011, and founded Tuffieh Funds. As a top manager in PPF, Blaško oversaw projects in the health sector and had been with the financial group for 13 years.
Blaško’s company Tuffieh Private Equity Fund has obtained 100 percent of PPF Healthcare for an undisclosed price.
PPF Healthcare has stakes in the companies Euroclinicum and Canadian Medical Care. Euroclinicum owns five regional polyclinics in České Budějovice, Ústí nad Labem, Přelouč, Pardubice and Slaný, a hospital in Zlín and two laboratories in Prague. Canadian Medical Care (CMC) is a private clinic in the Prague 6 and Prague 4 districts.
“With Euroclinicum, we will continue to concentrate on providing comprehensive out-patient services and diagnostic care with high standards across the Czech Republic. Investors are prepared to boost the company’s capital and support further expansion,” Blaško announced in a press release on Thursday. “The aim of Canadian Medical Care is to consolidate its position in the area of providing and organizing exclusive medical care.”
Tuffieh Funds manages four focused funds for qualified investors and received its license from the Malta Financial Services Authority.
